Despite the cold, cold wet and windy morning with patches of hail those connected to the vision of a new spiritual hub of CERES came together on Saturday the 18th of August for the third instalment of our ongoing working bees. We began by shifting the last of the blue stone rocks left from the clearing of the fire circle, as well as getting the fire going to keep us warm. After a generous morning tea under the car port of the EcoHouse, we set about shifting red gum sleepers from Honey Lane Market Garden and stock piling them ready for the first construction stage of the Meditation Garden. In between heavy (but safe) lifting, Nick Curmi – the site team manager at CERES – shared with us the story of the sleepers gifted to CERES in the rural replacement of timber for concrete railway lines. As we sat for soup, cake and coffee we mused on the journey of these ancient red gum sleepers, now given a new life and holding a space of contemplation for many years to come. This Meditation garden needs your help, we have had many generous donations however we are using up our funding fast with earth moving taking place this week. Please follow this link to donate if you can. Otherwise find out the details of our next working bee, as there will be much to do and many new folk to meet!
